Angels 15
Publisher: A and A Games

Forty four years ago, I read Martin Caidin's "The Ragged, Rugged Warriors",an account of the early air war against Japan, especially the adventures of the International Squadron in China. "Angels 15", in conjunction with the rule book "Scramble", also by A&A Games, fianlly allows me to refight the epic actions of this fascinating air campaign.

Such obscure aircraft as the Curtiss Hawk biplanes, the Boeing P-26, Curtiss Hawk 75, and the Martin 139 are all rated for the game, as are literally hundreds of planes for all theatres of the Second World War, the Spanish Civil War, the Nomonhan Incident, the Chaco Wars of South America, and the Russo Finish War.

Players of the "Scramble" game will be familiar with the format of the entries, and should find ALMOST every plane they are looking for (I was hoping for the Grumman F3F and Curtiss SOC-4, since they flew Neutrality patrols before the US entered the War).

I found a small mistake in the US listings, both here and in the Scramble book: the Brewster Buffalo F2A is placed in the US Air force list, rather than the Navy one. ( The army did have ONE in Australia, used for mechanic's training)

All in all, an invaluable add-on for owners of "Scramble", highly recommended!
